Growing up in Sheffield Lake, Sheffield Lake Community days is something I always look forward to every summer. There are rides, food, games and even live music! You simply have to get a funnel cake or french fries when you go to the carnival – it’s a given.

Alex and I got the chance to attend the carnival this year and had such a great time.

One of our favorite parts was watching the annual parade. The parade always draws a big crowd, and this year was no different. It’s always nice to see tons of people from your community come together.

Alex’s favorite part about the parade was watching the Brookside Marching Band. Having graduated from from Brookside, Alex and I both enjoyed seeing the band again. My favorite part was seeing my little brother’s baseball team in the parade!

The parade included so many interesting floats and familiar faces. Following the parade, everyone went directly into the carnival. Alex and I had a nice time walking around and sampling some of our favorite carnival treats. (I got the french fries of course.) Alex opted for some fresh lemonade.

The carnival is also full of fun rides for the whole family. My personal favorite is the ferris wheel, because you get a view of the whole city from the very top. Something else the carnival offers is live music, which is always a plus!

Alex and I returned to the carnival on Friday night for the annual firework show! This is another thing I always look forward to about the carnival. I mean, who doesn’t love a good firework show?

I was especially excited for the fireworks this year, because I got to bring my two nephews along. The carnival this year was just as fun as it always is. We can’t wait to go again next year, and the year after that!
